Short term solution-focused and longer term insight-oriented therapy. I can help you acquire new coping skills and incorporate already successful coping strategies into other parts of your life, enhance communication and improve your self-esteem and an overall sense of well-being, increase motivation and solution solving abilities and decrease anxiety, depression and other bothersome emotional states. I can help you modify long standing patterns that no longer work for you and work with you and your partner to change your relationship into one that you and your partner both want.

I believe that each person is the expert in their lives and my role is to assist my clients by teaching new skills, pointing out and reinforcing existing coping strategies, providing supportive feedback and exploring and helping resolve those issues that cause stress and suffering.
